For more than a decade, SIMAD University has been using the Gahayr school building as its second-biggest campus, hosting almost 30% of the student population. Today, the university handed the building back to the Ministry of Education, Culture, and Higher Education.
At a time the country was in a chaotic situation and the University was constantly moving from here and there, working vigorously to serve the nation and prevent the learning gap, the Ministry backed the university by allowing them to use the Gahayr school building for a while. Years later, the university restored its main campus and slightly started moving its operations there and sustained operating under the Gahayr building for almost a decade. As the university is now about to unveil a new campus, it returned the building back to the Ministry.
Gahayr campus has been home lately for the faculties of Engineering and Law, School of Graduate Studies, and Institute of Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (IITE Institute). The campus played huge and significant role in the development of Somalia’s education, particularly the SIMAD University. It produced thousands of students who almost all of them are now serving the country as social workers, lawyers, politicians, and engineers.
SIMAD University is extremely grateful to the Ministry of Education, Culture, and Higher Education of the Federal Government of Somalia for its unwavering support and contribution to the University’s progress over the past two decades.
